For any business, the most valuable entity that they possess is their cargo. When items are moved to and fro, there are many threats that they can be subjected to. Ranging from theft to accidents, cargo is vulnerable from the time it is dispatched from the warehouse, till the time it reaches its destination. Apart from safety, business owners also need to factor in efficiency of time while making deliveries. These are the pressure points that can impact the profitability of a business to a great extent.
Truck drivers in India are asking for your help. Please donate now: https://bit.ly/2RweeKH
Since time immemorial, the transportation industry has facilitated a flourishing economy and development in India. However, due to the highly unorganised nature of this sector, movement of goods stands hindered because of non-availability of drivers. As per statistics, out of a total of 8.5 million trucks in India, 28% of them sit idle due to lack of drivers to steer the wheel.
Along with that, the transportation industry in India falls prey to cargo theft. In fact, reports suggest that India accounted for a shocking 64% of freight theft all over Asia in 2019. With such statistics in play, and the pressure to optimise supply chain, inbound and outbound logistics and last mile delivery, it is important for businesses to have qualified personnel employed to handle their cargo.
